Please keep on Donating

Posted on 27th April, 2017

The first three months of the year have seen us very busy at the Scheme. With the help of all our donors we have collected over 15 tonnes of furniture and helped 1178 customers.  A big “Thank You” to all who have donated items and visited our shop.

Our customers come to us for a wide variety of reasons. By providing affordable, good quality furniture we support young people or families setting up home for the first time; those who are starting again following a relationship breakdown; older people downsizing or have suffered a change in circumstance; those who are moving into independent living, making the transition easier by enabling them to have a safe and secure place to live where they can feel at home straight away and those who are moving into dependant living.

By donating good quality furniture our donors have a direct impact on the lives of others. A table and chairs means families can eat together whilst a decent bed allows children a good night’s sleep improving their education and ultimately their life chances. By ensuring our furniture is affordable we can reduce the reliance on payday loans or credit agreements which impact on the level of household debt. Without the support of our donors this would not be possible.  To ensure that we can continue to provide this vital service donations of good quality items are always needed.

Finally we have received over £3000 from the Co–op Local Community Fund. This will be used to develop our website and Facebook page so that we can display items in the shop on line increasing access to our service for all Stevenage Residents.  We would like to say a huge thank you to all Co–op members for choosing us as your good cause.
